One of the nicest camp sites we've ever stayed in! Camp host was great. 2 week limit then must leave for 72 hours before moving back. NO RSVP's taken, 1st come, first serve so people paid for spaces all week but didn't show up till weekend. Pretty open during week but busy weekends & packed out holidays! Wifi didn't work but great Verizon coverage. Check website. Loved this place! - User3782

Pretty small grass sites with some sites with water at the electrical boxes. Right on the East Fork of the DM River. Great playground, horseshoe pits, near walking trail, very helpful host. - Crop Guy

This campground DOES have WiFi!! It's awesome, too! We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay. The only downside is that they do not take any reservations, and we were fortunate to get the last full hook up spot. There are 29 FHU's! You must like kids, as this park was full of them, and they aren't cautious around all of the rigs and vehicles, so you have to watch out for them. My kids would have had a ball here when they were younger. Be sure to pack something for them to ride on, with wheels. Razor scooters seemed to be a popular choice. The restrooms were clean and the showers were nicely laid out for privacy, showering and changing clothes. You could even put your foot on the bench to shave your legs! One set of neighbors were very friendly and helpful, while the others kept to themselves and their group. There were many younger parents who still partied outside after the 10:30 quiet time, but with your A/C on, you couldn't hear them. I would go back here in a heartbeat! I went with my hubby, son (11) and our dog. Just wish they took reservations!! If you golf, bring your clubs as the course is right next to the campgrounds. 10 minute, easy drive to Fort Dodge and Walmart, Target and restaurants. If you come from the East, stay on highway 20 to Fort Dodge, don't go through Webster City...it's really not faster and it is more narrow roads. - MRStroud

Really Beautiful park on golf course. Spots are level. Has a museum. We liked Frank A. Gotch Park (15 minutes away) better. - User3782

This park is nice, the management is terrible. They don't take reservations and many people save sites - for 3 and 4 days. When we came, there were only 3 full hook-up sites left BUT each had a car on them - for 3 days - until finally an RV showed up. We couldn't use these sites, no one else could use these sites and the campground lost $22 per day for 3 days and 3 sites for $198. This happens all the time. We spoke with the hostess but she did nothing. We never saw a ranger.
We'll agree with the previous review - without any management, the park is not always a pleasant experience. - swike

This is a destination to go to rather than your usual campground. The Grotto is Passport America friendly, at $7.50 per night for your first two days. It is a park-like setting, with beautiful shade trees and a pretty pond with two swans and geese to watch. It has 50 plus sites according to the man in the gift shop, but I think there is a second rv park area rather than the one we parked in. Some people said there is wifi, but when I called the office, they said that was in the "west" park only. There is 30 amp service only, and there is a water spigot and a dump station somewhere to use. We were able to get several PBS channels on the antenna, and no networks. So basically, you have a beautiful place to park with 30 amps of electric, and that worked for us. The Grotto is beautiful and a MUST SEE even if you aren't Catholic. - Ginny H

The grotto is spectacular. Actually I think there are 9 grottos. Each a masterpiece made of rocks and gems from all over the world. Not to be missed if your in the area. There is a beautiful lush green front lawn that has electrical connections and picnic tables. Off to the side of the grotto is a camping area with more designated campsite area with electric, picnic table and fire ring. The restroom/shower is in this area. I did not use it but I checked it out. It was not very nice but usable. The is a water station and a dump station that was easy to get to. Both camping areas had scattered shade trees. The grotto is in a residential area of the town. Very quiet except for an occasional train. Easy in and out. Gas and groceries a couple blocks away. This is a nice overnight spot and a great place to sit a spell and explore the beauty of the Grotto. Stayed here 2 days in a motorhome. Would definitely stay again. - camper19709

Small campground with 30 amp electric only, dump station and you need to fill water. Shade trees and picnic tables, Wi-Fi was good and got a fair Verizon service. This is a very quiet park except for the noon whistle that is next to the park and occasional train. It is a short walk to the Grotto of the Redemption that has nine different grottos of the life of Christ, and a museum with a large collection of rocks and petrified wood. - Tim M.

Small state park, limited number of large sites. We are in a 30 rig, and only a few sites were adequate. Mostly shady, watch for the trees. - stetwood

Stayed for 2 days during "Frontier Days" in Ft Dodge. The park is secluded, yet easily accessible. The Staff were very helpful and friendly. the Park Host was eager to help and was an asset to the park. We really enjoyed our stay there and will look forward to our next visit. - Linda and Jim

I made my reservation over the internet the day before showing up at the park. Sites are supposed to be assigned but there was no assignment on the bulletin board when I arrived. The campground host lady told me to just go ahead and take a spot since the campground was almost entirely empty. The sites are arranged in a clearing along one side of the valley formed by the Des Moines River. There is no privacy between sites but they are spaced about 50 feet apart. There is electric and water service but no sewer. I have a small trailer that would fit just about anywhere but big rigs would have no problems in many of the sites. This park wouldn't be a destination for me but I would stay here again if passing through the area. - Teardrop11

This was such a find. The Iowa State Park we normally stay in was already full so we took a chance on a Friday afternoon and drove to Dolliver Memorial because of the great reviews. It was cool to descend into a gorge carved by the Des Moines River after driving through flat cornfields for hours. The sites are large. The restrooms were spotless. The ranger was so nice checking in on how we liked our stay. On the weekends, there are kayak rentals available. Cell service is spotty because of being 200' below the cornfields, but it does exist. Would definitely stay here again. - fulltimervtravel
